Default Severe Storms Possible Wed & Friday

EDIT: CHANCE OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ON WEDNESDAY NOW.

Severe thunderstorms are possible on Friday across southern Ontario.

http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/exper/day4-8/
ON DAY 5...CONSIDERABLE DEEPENING OF THE MIDLEVEL TROUGH AND
ATTENDANT SURFACE LOW IS FORECAST AS THE SYNOPTIC SYSTEM ACCELERATES
NEWD INTO THE GREAT LAKES. WHILE THE GFS IS SLIGHTLY MORE
PROGRESSIVE THAN THE ECMWF WITH THE MOVEMENT OF THIS SYSTEM...IT
STILL APPEARS THAT A STRONG WIND FIELD WILL OVERSPREAD A MOIST AND
UNSTABLE WARM SECTOR IN PLACE OVER THE OH VALLEY INTO LOWER GREAT
LAKES. HERE...ENVIRONMENTAL PARAMETERS WILL BE QUITE OPTIMAL FOR
SUPERCELLS AND/OR A LARGE-SCALE LINEAR CONVECTIVE SYSTEM WITH THE
THREAT FOR WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER.

Hmm... I don't trust any forecasts beyond 24hrs. (if that) Yesterdays forecast was for cloud and rain today. It's been blue skies and strong sunshine all day long. My guess is that each 24 hrs the chance of the forecast being correct splits by 50%

I'm off Friday, too, and Saturday! That's a good 48 hours of room for the storms to move. Looking at dewpoint temperatures, I'm concerned for potential because GFS is only indicating 50F around here... with the good dews staying in Ohio/PA. Still a few days, this bears watching!!

(It's like the week before Christmas)

I happen to agree. Here we were supposed to have Rain and potential for Thunderstorms but its a beautiful day out.

I'm not too impressed by the temperatures on Friday. 15C.

There is potential tomorrow for severe thunderstorms, a slight risk is in effect from Woodstock southward. Hail and damaging winds are the forecast main threat.

So, it's looking good now. SPC has issued a Slight Risk of severe thunderstorms for most of Southern Ontario. Potential exists for bow echo thunderstorms and perhaps supercells through the early afternoon to evening across southern Ontario ahead of a cold front!

Slight risk reissued for southern Ontario today by the SPC!

From EC:


TODAY AND TONIGHT..CHANCE OF AN ISOLATED NON-SEVERE THUNDERSTORM
IN THE VICINITY OF NORTHERN LAKE HURON AND GEORGIAN BAY EARLY THIS
MORNING ASSOCIATED WITH A WARM FRONT OVER THE REGION. AS THE
FRONTAL WAVE MOVES EASTWARD, THE COLD FRONT TRACKING ACROSS
SOUTHERN ONTARIO WILL TRIGGER SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS THIS
AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK THAT SOME OF THESE
STORMS COULD BE SEVERE WITH DAMAGING WINDS BEING THE MAIN THREAT.
LARGE HAIL IS ALSO POSSIBLE.
